This short film, dense with beauty and feeling, was released as a companion piece to The National’s new album, I Am Easy to Find. Written and directed by 20th Century Women director Mike Mills, and starring Alicia Vikander, the film is not intended as a music video. It and the album it accompanies are instead described by Mills himself as “playfully hostile siblings that love to steal from each other.” A version of the film with director’s commentary is available on YouTube, as is a version with commentary by The National frontman Matt Berninger. The black-and-white cinematography is by Daniel Voldheim; Aaron Beckum was the editor.
